  Nick Moss and the Fliptops :: Sadie Mae
Nick Moss and the Fliptops :: Sadie MaeThe first time I saw Nick was about three years ago at BB's. I had an awful cold so I really didn't get to enjoy the show. I remember the next time I saw him I was totally floored by this mans talent and musical ability.

Nick's fourth CD release entitled "Sadie Mae" is an excellent showmanship of the bands hard work. The band, along with Nick, seems to get more polished and tight as time goes by.

I have had the chance to see the band perform many times and there is nothing like seeing them live. Moss plays with such intensity and emotion that you can really feel the music pouring from his soul.

The musician list is as follows:

Nick Moss - vocals & guitar

Gerry Hundt - harp& rhythm guitar

Bob Welsh (west coast cat; has played w/ Charlie Musslewhite, Rusty Zinn, Rj Mischo, etc)-piano & organ

Dave Wood - bass

Victor Spann - drums

The track listing is as follows:

1. Sadie Mae - a rockin' blues song dedicated to his adorable little baby girl

2. I Never Forget - traditional Chicago blues sounds

3. Check My Pulse - Jump blues sounds w/ nice piano in background

4. Just Like That - One of my favorite songs on the disc; love the harp playing

5. Ridin' at the Ranch - the usual instrumental show opener-great tune

6. One Eyed Jack - slow Chicago blues sounds

7. Grease Monkey - My second favorite; gotta listen to the words of this song!

8. The Money I Make - up-tempo sounds about money-aren't most blues about money, women, or fun??

9. Feel So Ashamed - groovin' blues sounds

10. The Coldcut Stomp - Fantastic piano blues boogie

11. The Bishop - slow guitar driven blues; another one of my favorites

12. You Got to Lose - nice harp/vocals/piano on this one

13. If I Could Get My Hands On You - Love the lyrics to this song; excellent harp and vocals

14. Crazy Woman Blues - Slow bluesy instrumental

15. Everybody Got To Go - Fast tempo blues

16. Gone Hoggin' - Great rumba type instrumental for closer

As I said, Nick is one of my favorites of the time. He has classic sounds that include Jimmy Rogers & Muddy Waters to name a few as well as his own unique bluesy compilations. You will not be disappointed to get a copy of this disc or any of the other he has available. Also, Nick is a very cool guy. Unlike some guys in the business Nick is very friendly and approachable - not to mention funny as hell!!! Check out tour dates, merchandise and other useful info at www.nickmoss.com.

I give this record a 4.91 of 5 on the stlblues.net rating.
